Can the Stagecoach Office React "interrupt" The Wretched's two traits, side-stepping the consequence (not cost) of needing to ace a dude you control? (Storywise, the "spare parts" would be "donated" from an unsuspecting passenger on the coach en route...)
Controller React, Boot: When you bring a non-token dude into play, place that dude at any location you control.
The Wretched must be invented by a Mad Scientist. It enters play at the Mad Scientist's location (but does not attach).
After The Wretched enters play, ace a dude you own and control in the same location. The inventing Mad Scientist gains 2 bounty (if still in play).
